  • The Russell Sage College Health Alliance Agreement is designed to assist not-for-profit organizations with employee recruitment, retention, and ongoing professional resources and training. Sage is a partner in making the best use of tuition assistance funds provided by your agency. Sage supports the efforts of health systems to attract and retain highly-qualified health service professionals. If your employer is a partner with Sage, you’ll get a 10% tuition discount.

    • The Health Alliance discount applies only to Evening, Weekend and Online students and graduate students — not undergraduate or doctoral studies.

    In order to qualify for the Health Alliance discount and deferment a student must:

    • Be a matriculated student in an approved program and in good academic standing.
    • Complete the Health Alliance Agreement Form and submit it to The Office of Student Accounts prior to the end of the add/drop period of the semester in which they want to utilize the discount and deferment.
    • Students utilizing the Health Alliance are still required to pay enrollment and/or registration deposits in accordance to college policy.
    • The Health Alliance Agreement Form needs to be completed for each semester the student enrolls.
    • Once the Health Alliance Agreement Form is on file, the student account is coded so that there are no late fees assessed on the student’s account.
    • Students will receive monthly email notifications that their statement of account is available.
    • The Health Alliance Agreement Form allows the student to defer payment of their outstanding charges until four weeks after the end of the semester in which the student was enrolled.
    • Students are responsible to make sure their account is paid within the allowed deferment period.
    • If the balance is not paid in full after the four-week deferment period, a Student Accounts hold will be placed on the student account, and a $50.00 late fee will be applied.  Future discounts and deferments will not be honored.
    • Questions regarding Sage Health Alliance can be directed to The Office of Student Accounts at 518-244-2205 (Troy) or 518-292-1788 (Albany).
